Spellbinders | Yana’s Blooming Birthday Collection – Slimline Foiled Card

I’m excited to share my third Glimmer Hot Foil Plates collection for Spellbinders – Yana’s Blooming Birthday. I worked on this line in the second half of 2020 and I’m anxious to finally see these designs come to life. The collection is now available at select retailers, for example at Simon Says Stamp, and on the Spellbinders website. There’s is also a project kit available with a video tutorial.

YANA’S BLOOMING BIRTHDAY

Spellbinders | Yana's Blooming Birthday Collection

Being a long-time cardmaker, I cannot resist a gorgeous foiled accent on my handmade cards. Glimmer adds such beautiful, exquisite effects, it instantly elevates your project and draws the eye of the recipient in.

“Wow, did you make that?” Is usually the reply I get from people I gift my cards to. When designing the Blooming Birthday collection, I wanted to create a set of plates to be used together that would allow us, cardmakers, to make beautiful, one-of-a-kind greeting cards for many occasions beyond birthday celebrations to wow and astonish the recipient.

The collection includes everything you might need – from a set of must-have sentiments to beautiful candle background, stunning florals, and more! I hope you’ll enjoy creating with my latest Blooming Birthday line with Spellbinders!

CARD IDEA

I wanted to introduce this collection by sharing a Hot Foiled & Copic colored slimline card. Slimline is all the rage right now, and while the products in Yana’s Blooming Birthday collection weren’t designed for the slimline or mini slimline size specifically, they can certainly be adapted to these measurements.

CARD INSTRUCTIONS

Follow these instructions step by step to re-create this card:

  • Cut white cardstock panel to 3 1/4″ x 7 3/4″. Find the center and foil the Blooming Floral Background plate 4 times from the center out using gold foil. I made a drawing to illustrate the best way to foil this:

  • Color the background with Copic markers. I used my usual go-to colors: B97 for the background; YG01, YG03 to color the leaves; BG11, BG13, BG15 to color the flowers.
  • Use a white gel pen to color the berries.
  • Foam mount background to a slimline card base cut to 3 1/2″ x 8″.

    1. You used Copic on your background? I thought it was navy card stock! Beautiful results! Love your new collection— my stuff is already ordered and on it’s way to my home. Thank you for the great new products!

      1. yes! all colored using a dark blue Copic marker. It takes longer, but this way I can also use Copics on the florals. So glad you like this collection. Cannot wait to see what you’ll make!

    1. Wow! I love this card and the possibilities with this collection! A video would be helpful as I still have not invested yet in a Glimmer Hotfoil system. But I am close by seeing this gorgeous collection and your cards.

      1. thank you, Sabine! I do plan to film a video, but admittedly, I’m quite behind. Glimmer is like any tool – requires practice for perfection (or to get good results).

      1. thank you! It would have been easier to use navy for the base, but I wouldn’t have been able to color the flowers like that. It is tricky 🙂
